You can utilize these no-prep, interactive slides to present information and engage students in discussions, group activities, and more.

AND, AND, AND! It’ll only take 10-15 minutes daily. Read below to learn how.

How to Use the Slides

As you know, there’s more than one way to use a resource. 🙃

So, below, you’ll find a quick gist of the breakdown in directions for each slide. See the “When to Use” section for more.


I designed the slides to be used in tandem, so all five slides per leader are used in a single lesson. You can utilize all five slides in one day or divide them and work on one daily.

These free Hispanic Heritage Month biography slides include the biographical slides for Dr. Franklin Chang-Díaz, Sylvia Mendez, and Julia Alvarez. Additionally, the entire set includes twenty well-known, lesser-known, and modern Hispanic leaders.

Slides Breakdown

  • SLIDE 1 – Vote! Firstly, pique student interest by showing an actual image of Dr. Franklin Chang-Díaz, Sylvia Mendez, and Julia Alvarez. Conduct a class vote and record the count of students familiar or unfamiliar with these leaders.
  • SLIDE 2 – Learn! Introduce Dr. Franklin Chang-Díaz, Sylvia Mendez, and Julia Alvarez by reading a short biography. Students will learn more by viewing (provided) YouTube video(s). **PLEASE view the video(s) ahead of time to determine if it will suffice for your learners.**
  • SLIDE 3 – Analyze! Read and analyze the quotes by Dr. Franklin Chang-Díaz, Sylvia Mendez, and Julia Alvarez. Considerations are also included to help guide student thinking. **This activity is best suited for upper elementary grades 3-5 but can easily be skipped if not appropriate for your learners.**
  • SLIDE 4 – Quiz & Collaborate! Next, students can test their memory by trying to fill in the blanks with simple words from the summary on SLIDE 2. Further, open-ended questions particular to Dr. Franklin Chang-Díaz, Sylvia Mendez, and Julia Alvarez are included for discussion.
  • SLIDE 5 – Check & Collaborate! You can reveal the answers to SLIDE 4 here. Additionally, I’ve included another opportunity to collaborate; students will turn and tell a partner one thing they’ve learned about Dr. Franklin Chang-Díaz, Sylvia Mendez, and Julia Alvarez.

If you need it, I have a more in-depth breakdown of each slide with pictures to match and help you further visualize.

When to Use

There’s no one right or wrong way to use these slides. Rather, they’re quite adaptable.

Feel free to utilize the slides however you see fit! Here are some suggestions for applying them:

  • Morning Meeting: Project the slide(s) for the day and discuss with students; this helps build a familiar routine.
  • Discussion Starters: Use the slides to spark class discussions. Slide 4 includes an open-ended question already ready for you!
  • Cross-Curricular Connections: Integrate the daily slides into various subjects. For example, you can incorporate science by exploring inventions or innovations.
